Focal points for the Energy industry are cost savings and efficiency as drivers of business success.
Technology is a fundamental enabler to drive these savings, and despite a resistance to invest - now is the right time to prepare for a more digitally enabled workforce utilizing intelligent network systems.
Industry 4.0 introduces the intelligent industrial plant. One which is connected, automated, monitored, controlled and self-learning via the connection of sensors and machines utilizing IoT. Preventative maintenance, condition based maintenance and network optimization are enabled systematically, automatically and autonomously by technology.
The results? Cost savings, efficiency, gains in productivity and revenue growth.
Be at the forefront of the next industrial revolution with a partner you can trust. We've helped customers in the Energy sector realize savings with innovative, intelligent, real-time network optimization systems.
With margins decreasing and global competition increasing, companies must ensure the most efficient operations possible. To do this, companies must have access to critical production data and the tools to transform that data into actionable insight.
We've developed a smart, real-time hydrogen network fully integrated with field and production scheduling systems to optimize and run hydrogen flow distribution - reducing hydrogen waste at one of largest refineries in the Mediterranean by 400,000 kg/month
As the economic slowdown continues on a global scale, population growth continues along with the increasing living standards in many emerging countries - ensuring energy demand continues to grow. Energy companies have to consider this, evolving regulatory and environmental issues and carefully weighing the risk-reward relationship with each project.
